I was about to throw out this old frame while cleaning out our garage and then I remembered I’ve been looking for something to paint white for a while now!
I headed to the hardware store, picked up All Purpose Acrylic White paint with gloves, a mask, and a paint brush. Because this particular pot was water based, I was able to wash my brushes and bowls with water afterward, no need for turpentine.
I applied two coats and after it had dried, I gave it in at our neighborhood Glass and Framing shop, Le Nor Picture Framers. They fitted it with a mirror and fixed it with a strong back cover with horizontal and vertical hangers at a reasonable price.
Now my dining room wall is transformed by something I was about to chuck away!
